    Just wondered what everyones resting pulse rate is like, i'm worried mine is getting a bit high as I can often feel my heart really pounding hard.I just took mine and it is 120 bpm roughly :s

    I was in hospital the other weekend and i was having problems with my pulse rate. Highest it went to was 131 and it wouldn't go below 120 so they were pretty concerned but it did decide to drop in the end. Maybe just give your midwife a call and see what she says?

    I have been having probs with mine too. First picked up at hospital when i was 24 weeks and then several times after that. Was between 114 and 119. I've been feeling exhausted with it and put no weight on. Ended up in A&E few weeks ago and was 136 when I got there and on ECG 153bpm - all of these were at rest. Had a heart scan and apparently my heart is all good. Excellant muscle and arteries and flow all ok. This is all reassureing apart fromt they dont know why its doing it.

    Just wanted to reassure you that it can be fast and ok and try not to worry about it. Do get it checked though xx

    No i had a water infection, sickness and other bits and bobs :rofl: They did keep me in an extra few hours though due to my pulse being up! I ended up having an ECG but that came back normal.
